Happy Birthday to my dad and update on momma

The video above is the music they played on a DVD with all our pictures and the life my daddy had with my step mom, Marcy and her 3 children. I was trying to upload the video/slide show, but wasn't able. Today it's really hard dealing with daddy's birthday. I guess cause my momma is in intensive care.
I just off the phone with momma's nurse. I'm jumping up and down with Joy, because her Dr had left a note Friday for us to have a meeting with him early Saturday morning. But, when I got there (My brother's have the flu, so I'm the only been able to go to the hospital) the Dr was very happy! He said momma improved so much through the night. He really thought we were going to have the Bad Talk. (If you get my drift) He told me that God still had plans for her and she wasn't through fighting. He said we still had a long ways to go. Well, instead of going to the hospital today the DR told me to go to church and go a head and take the kids to Winter Jam. (I'm going at 2 and bed time) So, I called this morning and the nurse said momma was off the veriset (SP?)(it's the medicine to keep her a sleep) They had cut her ventilator down to 8 yesterday, but was on 4 this morning. The are giving her strong pain meds and are going to see about giving her her meds she takes at home for she can wake up and they go a head and take her off the ventilator.
When I 1st started this post I thought it was going to be another sad one. Isn't God good! He helped turned my whole day around!
Thank you to everyone for your thoughts, good vibes, support, prayers and what ever else. I'm so thankful to have such good friends here in blogger world.
